Illustration Friday: Crunchy

Thinking back on my time living in Idaho, I can remember many a time walking to class in old, cold, frozen, crunchy, snow.

Wedding Photos

Some photos I took from my sister-in-laws wedding.

Some photos from my phone

My favorite sign in Salt Lake, complete with flashing bulbs and fake wood grain.
While hiking I saw this carved into a tree and marveled at the craftsmanship.
On one of the long boring stretches of the drive from Salt Lake to Seattle.
A store here in Seattle that specializes in selling quinceanera dresses as well as smokes.

New York Times sketch

Oprah Winfrey to end her talk show, gasp. Don't fret though it's not really over.

Trip to Antelope Island

These are photos from a trip we took to Antelope Island in September. And in case you were wondering Antelope Island is surrounded by the Great Salt Lake. We took the trip before we left Salt Lake, so I could say I had atleast seen the lake we lived by for the past couple of years.

New York Times sketches

Since I know longer have job, and I have been missing dearly my "morning meeting sketch" time, I decided to start a new sketch project; taking headlines from the New York Times and coming up with a quick sketch. Here are two from today. The first one from the article "Senate Health Bill Said to Cost $849 Billion Over 10 Years." The second from the article "Only Her Stylist Knows For Sure."

This was the other idea for my Illustration Friday submission. It has to do with cable news commentators, insert your own opinion here _____.

Illustration Friday: Unbalanced

I remember as a kid the commercials would always say, and probably still do, _____ is part of a balanced breakfast. I don't know about anybody else, but the cereal was the breakfast, there were no other parts. The commercials always showed the kid with a whole tray of stuff. Is it said like that so that the cereal company can get away with all the sugar that goes into the product?

In case you haven't seen them already, Albert Exergian's minimalist tv posters. Very clever stuff, reducing a tv show down to the simplest of elements. (via Design You Trust)

Illustration Friday: Fast

Illustration Friday: Frozen option B

My other idea for Illustration Friday. Now that I executed it, I kind of prefer it over the previous idea. So it has to do with frozen things being cold, when it's cold it's basketball season and the abdominal snowman loves the cold so why not basketball.

Illustration Friday: Frozen

This stemmed from a news article about a website that was made to explore the affect of social media on our society, as well as a study from Ohio State University about how Facebook affects grades.

FORD 021C by Marc Newson

A Ford concept car from 1999, by Marc Newson. Great looking compact car, with a slide out trunk even. Rejected because it looked too much like a toy, and was unfortunately birthed in the age of SUVs. More here. (via yatzer)
